chris christie finally meets his idol. the man he's seen in concert more than 100 times. the governor and the boss, bruce springsteen. they're friends now. this is "hardball," the place for politics. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support nearly 250,000 jobs and invest more here than anywhere else. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. our commitment has never been stronger. >>> in the costliest presidential election in u.s. history, the 2012 race saw not one but $2 billion spent. president obama and mitt romney each raised over a billion dollars a piece and that's just the campaigns and party committees. the obama camp raised $1.123 billion while the romney camp spent $1.019 billion just behind them. when you add in the spending by the super pacs, those numbers go way up. we'll be right back. ameripr
christie. >> gov, sit tight. i got this. >> booker. >> governor, stand back! i got this. i got this. >> booker! >> now booker says he will honor a challenge he made to one of his million plus twitter followers to live on food stamps for a week to see how the other half lives. although it's fair to ask, as mayor of newark, doesn't he already know? the s.n.a.p. challenge, as booker calls it, means eating on just $4.32 a day. he he says he's doing to, quote, raise awareness and understanding of food insecurity, reduce the stigma of s.n.a.p. participation, and amplify compassion for individuals and communities in need of assistance. he was told by a constituent that nutrition is not a responsibility of the government. he seems to be itching to prove her wrong. he could run against the govern governor. i'm not saying he's insincere. i'm just wondering what living for just a week in someone else's shoes really proves. it's not like the food stamp challenge hasn't been done before. mayors of philadelphia and phoenix and even super chef mario batali has done it. what will it tell us that we
for republican governors. we have chris christie in new jersey coming to mind. why is it that voters will go gop for the state house but not for the white house? >> well, think all politics are local, as you've heard said before. and i think there's interesting demographics based on the personality. it does not always follow that the trend of the state is what they'll pick for the executive branch. it depends on who's in opposition. you have a choice to be made between a and b. certainly chris christie i think presents a dynamic leader making reform and doing things that need to be done in new jersey. i mean they've had about 110 tax increases. he came in and said no more. that's a formula for failure. and he's in his own inimitable way said we're not going to do that anymore. i think people appreciate somebody who stands up and says it like it is and gets something done. and that's i think the example of new jersey. and in utah we are a very red state. it would be very difficult for a democrat to win here. we are very consecutive historically. and we've got good results. we've had a string of g
governor chris christie of new jersey had the exact attitude about jersey shore, said no good could come from the show only serves to perpetuate false stereotypes, under pleasant sort of repugnant images. the jersey shore people aren't in new jersey. >> mike: staten island, new york. >> alisyn: thank you. you've got to go deep into jersey to get this. and anyway, joe manchin wants mtv-- he knows it's only going to perpetuate stereotypes of west virginia and here is what he said. instead of showcasing the beauty of our state, you preyed on young people coaxing them into displaying shameful behavior and now you're profiting from it. >> clayton: i lived in west virginia, beautiful, beautiful people and towns and nicest people you would meet and never met anyone that looked or acted like the morons you're seeing in the show. i covered some depressed poverty stricken areas, certainly during floods and i never et met anyone like that. >> alisyn: they weren't doing geller shots and fist bumps constantly. >> clayton: driving around on the back of a truck half naked, wait. >> alisyn: you did see
government and states. it is a republican notion. governor christie did not want to do it. this is disappointing. i want to make sure pennsylvanians are not disadvantaged. the federal government will have to set up that exchange so they have access to affordable coverage so they can by private insurance in a way that makes sense and there is competition to reduce costs. implementing this law the right way is important. i would love to see the republicans in washington be able to embrace this. for examples, under part d, the democrats and not like the way the republicans added prescription drug coverage. we thought it should be covered by medicare. it did not mean that we would not help to make it work. i had just come into office. we had one form after another in my district to make sure seniors understood how to use it and that it worked. that is what ought to happening now. we ought to have republican governor say, this is the law of the land. i will make sure in pennsylvania my families and businesses have access to every advantage economically and for their health secu
